Connecticut Children’s is the only health system in Connecticut dedicated exclusively to the care of children, welcoming over 100,000 patients and families through their doors each year. Among Connecticut Children’s many areas of specialty care is their Center for Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which provides patient- and family-centered care to more than 800 children and adolescents affected by digestive disorders.
Under the direction of Jeffrey Hyams, MD, an international pioneer and leader of advanced IBD research and treatment, the Center for Pediatric IBD at Connecticut Children’s is the largest pediatric clinic dedicated to digestive diseases between Boston and New York. As a leader in IBD research, their top physicians and researchers oversee a range of clinical trials and remain at the forefront of scientific discoveries – striving to improve the quality of life for children living with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Established in 2021, the Bottoms Up Patient Family Support Fund at Connecticut Children’s provides financial support for patients and the families of patients who have been evaluated, diagnosed and treated for ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. The fund provides valuable assistance for medical cost needs such as health care shortfalls, supplemental medication, medical supplies and non-medical needs as identified.
“Connecticut Children’s is honored to partner with Bottoms Up to support our patients and their families affected by ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. The Bottoms Up Patient Family Support Fund ensures our families have access to vital resources, enabling them to focus on what is most important: the health of their child. On behalf of the patients and families whose lives are made better by your generosity, we thank you!”
